Old Boys

The Knox County Warthogs are the Kenyon Old Boys. Founded and named in 2008 by Albie Fox '07 and Jesse Rosenbluth '07, the team has sought to use its old man strength and general grizzledness to beat down the Kenyon Men.  The last few years has seen them split the series with Kenyon, small details like cardiovascular fitness and sobriety giving Kenyon the edge. 

In 2012, the Alumni Cup was introduced.  After a hard fought match, marked by unfortunate turnovers and near heart attacks, the Kenyon Men claimed possession of the trophy for the year.  

Kenyon 24 - 0 Knox County.

In 2013, stinging from the loss of the trophy and fortified by ibuprofen Bullit Bourbon cocktails, the Old Boys brought their A game.  Featuring the deepest bench in years, the 27 Warthogs hammered away with their old man strength and smart rotations to regain the trophy. 

Knox County 38 - 0 Kenyon.  
Warthog Men of the Match: Jesse Rosenbluth '07, Walter Thorne '12.
